Temo Donovan
I am an accredited Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) Instructor and work as an Associate Trainer for Livewell Academy providing face to face and online training in the MHFA 2-day adult, half day and refresher courses. I previously worked as an NHS project manager in North West London, working closely with clinical teams to redesign cardiac services. In 2013 I started working with NHS England and moved from Cardiac to Mental Health, working on policy and strategic planning and developing pathways, these included perinatal mental health, primary care (GP training events), service user and stakeholder engagement and providing in-house MHFA courses to NHS employees in London and nationally.  In 2018 after 25 years of service, I decided to retire from the NHS, move away from London to settle in the peaceful countryside of Devon, where I can focus my attention on my teaching role and pursue my passion to raise awareness of mental health and reduce the stigma and discrimination surrounding mental health disorders.
